PEEC's Mission

PEEC's Mission

The Mission of PEEC is to improve opportunities for and implementation of energy efficient technologies, systems, and practices, with an emphasis on economically attractive deployment.

PEEC pursues six interrelated activities:
  • Deepening theoretically-based and empirically-based understanding of the forces shaping energy use;
  • Developing innovative approaches for understanding the decision-making environment in corporations, public organizations and households that determine the deployment and use of energy efficient technologies and practices;
  • Undertaking physical and engineering research designed to create or improve energy efficient technologies and systems;
  • Designing and analyzing policies or other practices to enhance economically attractive deployment, for example, by overcoming market and policy barriers;
  • Engaging students and faculty in research and education associated with energy efficiency;
  • Working with affiliates and other organizations outside of Stanford to improve deployment of energy efficient technologies, systems, and practices.
